Ok I have a D 1.3 CDTi (90) for about 2 mths.
and I’m starting to hear loud creaking noises from the centre of the car (near the seat belt mounts both sides) when going around corners sharp some times slow this also happens when going over speed bumps.
what possible causes and do other people have to same problem.



cheers

Its more than likely just the suspension creaking its a normal thing for alot of cars, as the springs settle although it can continue nothing to worry about but get it checked anyway wont harm

Right got the car booked in and checked,
there saying the suspension needs a weld, y would the suspension need welded, is it not better to replace the suspension. so i had to rebook the car in for the weld at the body shop, when i turned up to book i was told that there was 2 corsa's D in with the same thing, and has been there for months, as VX do not know what to do with them, i was told by the manager that there only allowed to remove the parts and take happy snaps and send them to VX, and wait a response. Nice car it is but how do i take it back and get a refund.

You wont get a refund i been fighting for months now. The exact same problem is apparent in my hire car that im currently driving. Im taking speed bumps flat out and driving into every pot hole i can find and its getting worse. Best thing to do is launch a case with customer care and get your dealers to log a case with vaux technical because without those 2 numbers you will get nothing.
